Tone, tone, tone, the Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster has it in spades. Of course, this is a Strat, so it has more about it than that, with all the classic components you know and love making this a machine of supreme playability, design, versatility, and… tone.
The Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster gives the impression of a classic instrument that has seen years of musicianship, and is readily waiting to be picked up and played, as the reliable workhorse that it is, but of course, other than the slight visual indiscretion of a humbucker at the bridge, there is more to this instrument that meets the eye. What does meet the eye however, is beautifully classic Strat design.
The legendary Strat silhouette has been crafted from alder and coated with the understated beauty of a 3-Colour Sunburst gloss polyester finish that gives a vintage vibe. This styling is continued throughout the instrument, including the 3-ply mint green pickguard and aged white plastic control knobs and switch tip.
Comfortable Fender Neck
Giving the kind of playability that only Fender can provide is another mainstay of the Stratocaster; a maple neck shaped to the Modern C profile, with a gloss urethane finish, which is kept securely in place by a four-bolt neck plate. This is accompanied by a 21 medium jumbo fret rosewood fingerboard with a radius of 9.5" (241 mm) and white dot position inlays.
Vintage Headstock and Bridge
Matching the vintage vibe of the body, is the Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster’s large 70s style Stratocaster headstock with its 70s style logo, and two wing trees. The synchronized tremolo bridge has also been given the vintage-style treatment, and chrome hardware has been used throughout the construction of the guitar.
Although the vintage aesthetics of the guitar would suggest the pickups would be of the same ilk, the Fender Deluxe Lonestar Stratocaster dispels any preconception with its configuration of two Texas special single-coil Strat pickups in the middle and neck positions, and a Twin Head humbucking pickup in the bridge.
Not only does this set up give you a super-hot-rodded tone that ranges from singing to screaming but it is more versatile than you may expect, thanks to the S-1 Switch, which is activated/deactivate by a push/pull of the master volume control. This allows you to access the rear coil of the humbucker. In addition to the master volume, you also have two tone controls and a five-way pickup selector switch.
